Estimating the effects of a low-cost early stimulation and parenting education programme in Mexico

3ie Impact Evaluation Report 57

Sergio Cardenas, David Evans and Peter Holland

In Mexico, a range of programmes focus on early childhood development. This impact evaluation examined the Programa Educación Inicial (Early Education Programme) in Mexico. This non-formal education programme provides training to pregnant women, parents and caregivers of children from birth to four years of age, living in highly marginalised, rural communities. It includes early stimulation practices to promote children’s cognitive development and the development of adequate parenting practices.

The study shows that the take-up of the programme by families was very low. It had a positive impact on parenting practices. Direct effects on childhood development were observed for younger children. However, the effects were more muted in the second year and among three- and four-year olds.
